Single-finger playing is performing technique on the stringed bow instruments, used by Djuro Zivkovic. The single-finger playing involves only one, single finger of the left hand to play melody. Theoretically speaking, the single-finger playing is the simple position changing. The effect produced by the single-finger playing is very smooth and sometimes reminds to singing, particularly in legato (bowed legato).
Single-finger playing should be explained on the first page in those parts that involves such technique and in the score:
The melody has to be played only with one finger (a simple position changing).
In the score it should be used as:
- single finger—- (first time)
- s.f.—- (continuing times)
